“MONSTERS”, Everyone has a dark side, it’s true. And some would say that he is darker than most. Broken Saints, Becoming, The Cat’s Maw. But he wanted to make a song for his young son that didn’t shy away from the reality of his daddy’s past struggles, and thus MONSTERS was born.
His Secret Thai Island Camp, mastered by Medellin’s top indie hip-hop producer in Colombia, has been recording and mixing for weeks and is set to open source error-free footage, nowhere for your listening and viewing pleasure. So close your eyes, play that bass, and enjoy the nightmare.
The somewhat experimental nature of “MONSTERS”’s expressed melodies is forever fascinating and, in fact, pays homage to its earliest moments when a musical instrument began to make waves. The soundtrack is beautiful and attractive but in no way what you might expect. The music now combines a direct sound with a very intense feel; A fresh start, a fresh start. Everything from the melody to the ending is exemplified. The storyline and those curved lifelines are about monsters.
Brooke Burgess’s abilities as a creative composer are well highlighted in this uniquely structured and adventurous release. “MONSTERS” offers a well-crafted, intimidating classic experience that speaks volumes about the underlying subject.
